we have to be tough. but have you to recognize, i think iraq is a great example, that it is important to find ways that we can come together. you know, if you get mad at your neighbor, you can throw eggs at your house, but sometimes you try to talk to them. now, the world's a lot more dangerous than our neighbors. so the president has a cool head, who will have diplomacy. i think, sadly, he is running against someone who can't go to the olympics without creating an international incident. the president has been able to get -- get partnerships around the globe. i don't think the american people, while we are leaders in the world and should continue always to be, the american people should not be the ones paying for in the pocketbook and with our lives, all of the challenges around the world. we need partnerships and that's important. >> shannon: both candidates will get to talk about that tomorrow night. minneapolis mayor, and vice chair of the dnc, thank you, sir, for your time. >> thank you.
